Lunt 152mm Doppler True Solar Telescope w/ Choice Of Blocking Filter & Focuser - LS152THa
The Lunt LS152THa Solar Telescope stands as the largest solar telescope currently available, offering an unparalleled balance of resolution and performance.
Featuring a 100% unobstructed system, it excels at both low and high magnifications.
The incorporation of advanced high-contrast coatings and the innovative Doppler True Pressure Tuning system ensures crisp, sharp, and high-magnification visual images.
This telescope is not only ideal for visual observations but also serves as a powerful tool for high-end digital processes, providing users with a versatile and top-tier solar observation experience.
Every Lunt Solar Telescope necessitates a blocking filter for safe operation. Select the right one for your needs:
- B1200 (12mm Blocking Filter) – for visual use
- B1800 (18mm Blocking Filter) – for larger field of view and imaging applications
- B3400 (34mm Blocking Filter) – for larger field of view and imaging applications with larger sensors
- No Blocking Filter Warning – only choose this package if you already have a Lunt Solar Systems blocking filter at your disposal. All Lunt Solar Systems h-alpha telescopes require a Lunt Blocking Filter.
True Doppler Tuning:
True Doppler Tuning, a groundbreaking feature of the Lunt Solar Systems LS152THa Solar Telescope, elevates solar observation to new heights.
This technology enables a dynamic shift into and away from the user, adding a 3D-like dimension to the viewing experience.
While its impact on prominences is minimal, it significantly affects filaments and active regions on the solar surface.
When observing a filament at the solar center, users can Doppler shift from the base to the tip, tracking the filament's structure in both directions.
This capability enhances visual and imaging experiences, serving as a valuable research tool. The pressure tuning system provides unparalleled precision in adjusting desired features.
The LS152THa also features an optional, interchangeable CaK module, allowing researchers to explore multiple wavelengths on the same platform.
For nighttime viewing, a specialized backing plate and focuser kit can convert the telescope.
Ideal for intermediate to advanced users, the Lunt 152mm Doppler True Solar Telescope is a versatile and powerful instrument for solar enthusiasts and researchers alike.
